5. The other guys get paid, too

The Lions, like the Bombers, fig­ure to be in an ornery mood when the ball is placed on the tee. They blew a 21-0 lead at home to Toronto — their largest ad­van­tage ever sur­ren­dered in a loss. Just to ham­mer that home fur­ther, the 21-point come­back by the Ar­gos was the third-largest in CFL history by a road team.

What makes the Leos a fright­en­ing op­po­nent is the weapons on of­fence, led by QB Travis Lu­lay, re­ceivers Em­manuel Arce­neaux, Austin Col­lie, Court­ney Tay­lor and Shawn Gore and — shout-out to the Win­nipeg lad — run­ning back An­drew Harris.

Harris was dy­na­mite last week, scor­ing three touch­downs. He has 391 yards from scrim­mage over the past three games.

“An­drew Harris is a very, very, very good run­ning back who catches the ball well out of the back­field,” said O’Shea, who is usu­ally stingy with his praise of op­pos­ing play­ers. “He’s a dual threat in that re­gard and he doesn’t mind block­ing. Like (Cal­gary’s) Jon Cor­nish, I find that he stays on his feet and gets yards af­ter con­tact.”
